The scanner in ME-101, the lower model gives output resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi. ME 301, the higher model, gives resolution of 1200 x 2400 dpi.
The new all-in-one printers launched are:

  • ME-101 All-in-One (AiO)Epson Expression
  • ME-301 All-in-One (AiO) that has Wi-Fi and uses Epson DURABrite Ultra inkEpson Expression  

These new printers will replace Epson’s best selling Stylus TX121 all-in-one. These are the first models to bear Epson’s new “Expression” branding that will be used for future Epson printers designed for home use.

The world’s smallest printers: Engineered to save consumers desk space, the new printers are 15% smaller than their predecessor and are the smallest all-in-one desktop printers in the world, claims Epson spokespersons.  

High quality prints: Using Epson’s proprietary Micro Piezo print-head technology, the new printers have a class-leading maximum print resolution of 5760 X 1440 for extremely smooth gradations for both grayscale and colour documents and photos and a high print speed of 24 pages per minute (ppm) in mono printing and 13 ppm in colour printing under their ink saving draft mode.

Individual Ink Cartridges: Like their predecessor, the new printers also have a small environmental footprint by their use of individual ink cartridges that allow users to maximize cost savings by changing only the ones that have depleted.

Low cost ink: The Epson Expression ME-101 uses a new set of highly affordable T1661 Series dye-based cartridges that produce excellent glossy photos on Epson Glossy Photo Paper. Priced at only Rs.191 per black cartridge and Rs.345 for each colour cartridge, it helps to reduce the costof printing. 

Epson DURABrite Ultra ink: For users demanding superior print durability and permanence, the Epson Expression ME-301 uses Epson DURABrite Ultra pigment inks that produce smudgeproof and waterproof prints that also have industry-leading light-fastness of up to 120 years--on all kinds of papers: plain, matte, and glossy.

The price of Epson Expression ME-101 is Rs. 3999 and price of Epson Expression ME-301 is Rs.7699
